Yeah, I’m starting to feel it – I’m losing my competitive gaming touch. It’s cool though, I had a hell of a run, and I stand firm that in 1998 only 2% of the gaming population tops could defeat me in Goldeneye. You can believe what you want, but you know that you picked Oddjob just so you could be a tiny, hard to hit Asian target with a bowler hat. Oddjob was the definition of cheap and everyone knows it. Nowadays children are raised on competitive gaming platforms from the moment they are spat out of the womb. How can any child of the 80’s hope to compete with these gaming super-soldiers?
Nothing proves this more than playing Call of Duty or UFC Undisputed online. There is nothing worse than having a K/D ratio of .25 while a kid who hasn’t even entered junior high mocks you with his high pitched voice and regurgitated Two and a Half Men put-downs. I’ve felt the sting of tiny voices too many times, especially playing UFC Undisputed online. Maybe if UFC 3 had ranked simulation settings this kid wouldn’t spam bungalows like the majority of ranked match fighters out there, maybe not though. There is no stopping this kid, he is clearly a GOAT in the making… Either in trash talk or gaming.
Here’s a surprisingly long look at who you’re playing against. No can defend.
